is political satirist and host john fugelsang, thanks for being here. >> nice to be here. >> eliot: is this what it has come for. >> it was the secular humanist who trashed our economy, you know that governor. >> eliot: yes. >> he was the same pastor in texas that ran that empty stadium event with rick perry last year. i prayed that nobody would show up at that event, and it worked. michelle obama tells you to eating habits she is criticized, but this guy is fine telling people to fast. >> eliot: what explains it, then in do think it is going to work? what is the game here? -- why not just kind of brush the whole thing aside, and say okay this didn't work out so well. >> it's about tribalism and who's side has the power, and they would rather have the guy they hate in power who will be a one-term foot rest but have the other guy on the power. it's not really about ideology it's about who has got the ball. >> eliot: that's exactly right. you cannot appease your enemy. >> yes, and the romney folks all saying the polls are weren't saying this when 75% of the republi

't fully answer what will happen. john boehner odds are, is still likely to be speaker of the house. >> sure. >> eliot: in which case you will have a tough negotiation with him. can you pledge to the american people that you will stand rigid in opposing extension of the bush tax cuts for the wealthiest americans? >> the president's economic team knows they have a mountain to climb in front of them in terms of dealing with congress. the congressional leadership on the republican side came together the day the president was nominated and said we care more about score political points than working with this president. change comes by engaging people outside of washington, and putting pressure on the leakership in congress. so that's what we are going to do, and continue to do that, we hope the speaker and other republican leaders will come to the table. this is a time to get together sleeves, and continue to build off of the last four years. >> eliot: one area where there has been consistent criticism as been with respect to resolution of the mortgage crisis. the

of merrill lynch, john bain was not about how the system could be saved the economy preserved the integrity of the banks upheld. no he asked if his compensation was going to be cut. this is the guy who spent over a million dollars putting new carpets in his office paid for by shareholders and then taxpayers. today, i participated in a radio broadcast for bbc and npr again on the topic of the financial crisis. on the panel was bethany mclean, a great author and one of our favorite guests. she made a really important point. that flawed compensation structures that gave bankers proverse incentives to take great risk at the expense of others was at the root of the crisis but she pointed out we, as a society, did not and do not object to high pay when people perform. it's when they're compensated with huge paychecks and bonuses even when they fail and then are compensated again and again that we are troubled. she's exactly right. we do not object to derek jeter's big paycheck or warren buffett's. they earned them.

that the first debate may be not so -- it may be like john mccain and barack obama four years ago. the first debate was the first letdown. a lot of wonkiness. they didn't go after each other very hard. they were a little bit nervous in feeling each other out. >> eliot: the notion they would enjoy it, i can tell you i've been through debates nothing on term with that, you don't enjoy it. there are butterflies in your stomach when you walk out there. you know the campaign potentially rests on every utterance you make. there is the his tansey -- hesitancy no matter how skilled you may be, there is a hesitancy and a fear. that's unavoidable. >> how do you deal with glenn beck who is a master of television regardless of what people may think about him. they're using a nice picture of you grimacing. glenn beck has the smile and you don't. >> eliot: i'm trying to scare him. getting prefight cut to look bloodied and beaten up even before we start. it will be fun. in a way this emotionally is similar to what people go
